As we have recently reported, Big Machine recording artist Cassadee Pope‘s debut single, “Wasting All These Tears,” was RIAA certified as Platinum for moving one million units. Achieving Platinum status is a feat in itself, but, if you are familiar with Cassadee, you know that this young artist constantly strives for more in her budding country music career.
Well, this comes as no exception, as Cassadee not only received high honors from RIAA, but also broke a country music record in the process. With Cassadee’s certification, she becomes the first solo female country artist to achieve a Platinum-certified debut single since Taylor Swift‘s 2006 release of “Tim McGraw.”
Congratulations to Cassadee on leaving her footprint on history! You are doing country music proud and are representing female artists beautifully!
Tyler Farr has many milestones to celebrate lately!
His number one hit single, “Redneck Crazy,” has been certified platinum by the RIAA. Farr was surprised with his commemorative plaque at the Sony Music Nashville CMA Party.
“Redneck Crazy” is the lead single for Farr’s debut album of the same name, which was released in late September. Redneck Crazy, which opened at number two on the Billboard Country Albums Chart, is the biggest selling debut album by a male country artist since 2011.
In addition to celebrating his new platinum status, Farr has also been nominated for the CRS 2014 New Faces Country Music Show.
Farr’s newest single, “Whiskey In My Water” is impacting country radio and climbing the charts. He is currently on the road with Florida Georgia Line, and will join Jason Aldean on tour next year.

It must be tough being The Band Perry these days. They’ve got a prime touring gig with Rascal Flatts, a multi-week #1 hit and a forthcoming album, Pioneer. Additionally, it was just announced that “Better Dig Two” has been certified Platinum by the RIAA, for sales over one million copies. The song is both the first single off their hotly-anticipated new album, as well as the fastest-rising song of their career.
As they prepare to release Pioneer on April 2, the talented trio recently revealed their album tracklisting.
Eric Church‘s “Chief” was released last July, debuted at Number 1 on the Top 200 Sales Chart and recently added another accolade, a Platinum certification. The EMI Records’ album was certified Platinum by the RIAA, and Church’s latest hit, “Springsteen,” has been the number 1 country single for the past 2 weeks.
Ironically, 28 years ago that same week, Bruce Springsteen went to #1 with his only #1 on the Pop Chart, “Dancing In The Dark.”
